Simple White Bread
500 ml warm water
140 g white sugar
42 g fresh yeast
9 g salt
100 ml olive oil
1 kg flour
In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam.
Mix salt and oil into the yeast.
Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.
Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide into 6. Shape into balls, and place into well oiled baking pan.
Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.
Bake at 175 C for 30 minutes.
